Waiting on Wednesday (25)

Waiting on Wednesday is so graciously hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!
This week's pick is...
All You Get is Me
by Yvonne Prinz
Release Date: December 21st, 2010
What happens when a city girl is transplanted onto a ramshackle organic farm in the middle of nowhere? Everything.
Sixteen-year-old Roar has been yanked from her city life and suddenly she’s a farm girl, albeit a reluctant one, selling figs at the farmers' market and developing her photographs in a rickety shed. And then she witnesses a crime that will throw the whole community into an uproar. Caught among the lure of a troublemaking friend, her love for a brooding boy, and her complicated feelings about her father’s human rights crusade, Roar is going to have to tackle it all. And with a camera around her neck, she’s capturing it all, too.
My Thoughts:
I love reading stories where the main character is out of their element. I feel like it gives me the opportunity to get to know the character much better because in most cases there is a stark contrast between them and those in the character's new setting. All in all, this sounds like it should be a good read. I'm really interested to see who Roar is (is that her real name?? Nickname?)- she seems creative and I'd love to see how she contrasts with those in her farm world, as well as how she transitions from the city life to selling figs. Also, who is this brooding boy? Interesting... As the summary says, there's a lot to tackle, and Im interested to see how Prinz takes it all on.
So that's what I'm waiting for this week! It's Wednesday, what are you 'waiting' for?
